Japanese Shiatsu

Japanese Shiatsu is an oriental form of healing that is over 1000 years old which uses finger pressure massage along acupuncture points on the meridians of the body. The technique involves stretching, holding and leaning with body weight pressure and contact is applied through the hands, thumbs, fingers, forearms, and feet. After you lie on the table face down, wearing loose- fitting clothes, I will begin the treatment on your upper back. The session proceeds to the neck, back, hips, legs, feet, face, pectorals, and abdomen and takes about one hour.

Japanese Shiatsu focuses on the energy channels {meridians} of the body, promoting balance to the entire system. It tones areas of the body with deficiencies and disperses blocked areas of the body so the energy in the meridian can flow easily. Shiatsu helps on a basic level to improve energy flow, blood circulation, flexibility and posture. A full body shiatsu treatment leaves you feeling totally rejuvenated, refreshed, clear and balanced.
